Join us for a musical morning at the IFI, starting with a singing workshop followed by a live in-person interview with Gerald Barry and ending with a cinematic trip to Alice's wonderland.

Enter the magical world of Alice at a special screening of Irish National Opera's Alice's Adventures Underground, which includes a singing workshop and and an interview with composer Gerald Barry. Both Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are given an extra twist in Gerald Barry's operatic treatment, all in under and hour. Meet a kaleidoscope of colourful characters in this joyful, headlong rush into a world gone deliciously mad.
